Browns QB Johnny Manziel: "It's my life"

Posted: Updated:
BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Johnny Manziel isn't going to change his lifestyle for anyone - like it or not.

Cleveland's celebrated rookie quarterback said he's surprised about the reaction to his weekend trip to Las Vegas. Manziel took advantage in a break from the Browns' organized team activities to take a well-documented outing to Vegas, where he hung out poolside with Patriots partying tight end Rob Gronkowski, attended a UFC fight and enjoyed the nightlife.

Manziel was aware of criticism about his decision to leave town. On Wednesday, he said if he wants to have fun and it doesn't hinder his goals, "then I really don't care what anyone has to say."

Browns first-year coach Mike Pettine said Manziel's trip was "a non-issue" for the team, adding he will not micromanage players outside the building.
